If you eat in this good destination restaurant, delightfully set in a boutique hotel - and designed for total relaxation - you'll also enjoy unparalleled views towards St. Michaels Mount.
The kitchen sources top-quality local produce, and this is presented in a simple but artistic manner to allow the main ingredients to shine through. Seafood is much to the fore.
Lunch brings everything from freshly-cut Sandwiches and various Salads through Cornish Charcuterie and Fish & Chips to 'Salt & Pepper Squid' and 'Sirloin Steak with hand-cut Chips & Watercress'.
In the evening, the menu expands with more ambitious dishes being listed. A late Spring version including 'Local Scallops with Black Pudding & Peas'; 'Fillet of Gurnard, with Red Chard & Beurre Noisette'; 'Roast Pork Belly with Apple Three-Ways' and 'Carpaccio of Beef Fillet with Watercress & Salsa Verde' among the starters.
'John Dory with Samphire, Quails Eggs & Gnocchi'; 'Pan-Fried Fillet of Brill with Wilted Wild Garlic, Dantelle Potato & Leek Paysanne'; 'Loin of Old Spot Pork with Pancetta & Fondant Potatoes' and 'Shin of Beef, with Mashed Potato & Celeriac Crisps' listed among the mains.
If you still have room, you might be tempted by 'Chocolate & Coffee Mousse with Vanilla Ice Cream'; 'Caramel & Peanut Parfait with Chocolate Sorbet'; 'Pineapple Tart with Coconut Sorbet' or their selection of Cornish Cheeses.
